Question: Are we an integral reality together with the Creator?
Answer: No, by no means are we one single reality with the Creator. The only reality is the Creator Himself. We as if exist outside of Him.
This is some kind of phantom, some kind of “spirit” that supposedly exists outside of the Creator in order to begin to feel itself, position itself correctly with the Creator, and to get closer to Him.
